Overview

Synopsis

Mary Higgins Clark's Loves Music, Loves to Dance
Mario Azzopardi's adaptation of the Mary Higgins Clark mystery Loves Music, Loves to Dance follows the producer of a talk show who begins to investigate the murder of her friend. The murder occurred not long after the friend responded to an advertisement in the personals; an ad that contained the phrase that gives the film its title. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Mary Higgins Clark's All Around the Town
Another of the PAX network's feature-length Mary Higgins Clark adaptation, All Around the Town wastes little time getting down to business, as popular college professor Allan Grant (Kevin Jubinville) is murdered. Despite her public display of grief, Allan's widow, travel agent Karen (Nastassja Kinski), is well aware of her late husband's reputation as a womanizer. In fact, the prime suspect is one of Allan's nubile young students, Laurie Kinmount (Kim Shraner) -- who happens to be the sister of DA Sarah Kinmount (Andrea Roth), the person in charge of prosecuting the case. Sarah does not want to send her own kid sister to the slammer, but is unable to get a clear story from Laurie, who claims to have no memory of the killing or even of being in the vicinity of the crime. Thus, Sarah joins forces with investigating detective Brandon Moody (Ron Lea) and psychiatrist Justin Donnelly (Michael Shanks) to unlock Laurie's mind -- with startling results. Filmed in Canada, Mary Higgins Clark's All Around the Town was first broadcast on May 18, 2002. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Where Are the Children?
In this melodrama that emphasizes emotion and a convoluted plot, Nancy Eldridge (Jill Clayburgh) has remarried after her divorce and is trying to recuperate from the tragedy of the deaths of her two children during her previous marriage. That means when her children by current husband Clay (Max Gail) are kidnapped, she is particularly distraught. When the identity of the kidnapper becomes clear, more facts about the past and the present are revealed, as events carry emotionally charged scenes to a larger-than-life ending. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Mary Higgins Clark's The Cradle Will Fall
The Cradle Will Fall stars Angie Everhart as a prosecutor who is investigating a serial killer terrorizing a hospital where she herself is being treated fertility problems. As she begins to uncover the truth about what is going on, she fears that she may be involved much more deeply than she had ever imagined. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Mary Higgins Clark's Lucky Day
Another of the PAX network's adaptations of the suspense novels of Mary Higgins Clark, the Toronto-filmed Lucky Day stars Amanda Donohoe as Nora Barkin, an aspiring actress who supports herself by working for a courier service. No sooner has Nora's friend and coworker Bill Reagan (Gino Marrocco) jubilantly announced that he possesses a lottery ticket worth 13 million dollars than Bill is killed by an unknown assailant. Though discouraged from doing so by investigating detective Marinello (Tony Lo Bianco), Nora insists upon trying to solve Bill's murder herself -- and in the process she follows a trail of evidence leading to her own husband Jack (Gregor Torzs). Mary Higgins Clark's Lucky Day was originally telecast on April 27, 2002. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
